the newly released follow-up to Joe Kuban and the Lost Chizo Band's well-recieved On The River Road . It is a compilation of fourteen original
songs by singer-songwriter and biologist Joe Kuban about his
beloved Big Bend territory and the people he has known
Joe spent years in the Rio Grande Big Bend country
researching the local environment, and captures the area's essence
in this unique Texana music anthology. The country/folk
influences of Solitario and Joe and the band's harmonies are as distinctive a blend of music as is the landscape of the Big Bend region itself.
Bend is a huge expanse of exceptionally unique desert, canyon, and mountain wilderness formed by the Rio Grande River in southwest Texas. Though a wild and rugged labyrinth, the area is anything but a wasteland. Aside from breathtaking vistas, it is home for diverse rare plant and animal life, and contains valuable archaeological remains as well. This inspired recording will transport you along the river, canyons, mountains, and hidden springs that evoke the legends of the region.
